The objective of this project was to design, build, and test a rotating binding-to-snowboard interface that allows the user to rotate their front foot in small increments hands free and provide riders with increased comfort and safety. Currently, there are no devices on the market that allow the user to do so without the use of a release mechanism or tools. The system uses a pre-made ball plunger as a follower and a circular cam to allow the rider to rotate the binding on demand while also preventing unwanted rotation during normal riding conditions. The prototype will be bench tested to measure the torque required to rotate the device. The device will also be tested on slope to ensure functionality while entering and exiting the ski lift as well as riding down the mountain.
